Heavyweight champion Mike Tyson appeared on the latest episode (6/11) of Drink Champs with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN and shared a story about the visitors that he encountered during his early 1990's stint in an Indiana prison. Mike says that he was at an afterparty at the Palladium on Sunset in California when he told security to let a group of young men in through the back of the venue and that one of the men ws Tupac. "Six months later I was in prison", Tyson revealed. "I got a call from Tupac's mother explaining that I let her son in the club and that he wants to come visit me. He came into the visiting room and there were all these hillbilly, hick mean Aryan guys. As soon as he came in they all started applauding him. They respected him."
"When I was locked up, I had an onslaught of visitors", the champ announced. "B.B. King, Whitney Houston, James Brown, Florence Henderson. Everybody - I can't even name them all, everybody came to visit me when I was away". Tyson discussed his relationship with Tupac on a recent episode of his HOTBOXIN' podcast where he hosted the art from 'Pac's Makavelli album which became a NFT recently. Tyson told TMZ HIP HOP: "This episode was cool to shoot. Having the opportunity to honor Pac and have this painting here with us was awesome. It's by far the most iconic Hip-Hop album artwork of all time." Tupac spent his last moments in Las Vegas after attending the Tyson vs Bruce Seldon fight on September 7, 1996.
